Abstract:The committee report gives design and construction requirements for concrete silos covered in "Recommended Practice for Design and Construction of Reinforced Concrete Bins, Silos, and Bunkers for Storing Granular Materials (ACI 313-77) and Commentary" when they are reinforced with prestressing steel. This document may be considered at some future date for inclusion as a chapter in ACI 313-77 and its commentary. For this reason it is written in a language similar to that of the standard.
